Vital Statistics 



Vital statistics — i.e. records of births, deaths 
and marriages — are in some senses the most 
fundamental of all figures published about a 
country. They provide information which is 
of great value to the medical profession and 
public health authorities in their continuing 
fight against disease and premature death, 
and they assist in making accurate estimates 
of the population in the years between the 
decennial censuses. 



The analysis of death certi- 
ficates by cause, sex and age 
gives valuable information 
regarding trends in infan t 
and maternal mortality, and 
deaths from communicable 
diseases and other causes 
such as cancer, diabetes, etc. 
As an example, a study of the 
statistics shows that from 
1921 to 1947 infant mortality 
dropped from 102 deaths per 
thousand live births to 45 per 
thousand, while during the 
same period maternal mor- 
tality fell from 5 deaths per 
thousand live births to 1.5. 
During the past two decades 
the mortality rate of four 
important communicable 
diseases — diphtheria, scarlet 
fever, measles, and whooping 
cough — has declined by over 
80 per cent. 

The size and rate of growth — or decline — of 
a country's population is basic to the inter- 
pretation of most economic statistics. This 
does not mean, of course, that there is any 
simple correlation between the size of popu- 
lation and the degree of prosperity enjoyed in a 
country; many intricate and highly complex 
factors enter into the picture. It is, however, 
to take one illustration, important to know 
not only the increase or decrease in the national 
income but the relationship of that change 
to the growth or decline in the population, 



NOTICE 



To bring the descriptive 
date of each issue of the 
Canadian Statistical Review 
to a closer conformity with 
the publication date this 
issue, which follows by one 
month the November, 1948 
issue, is designated January, 
1949, rather than December, 
1948. This change is en- 
tirely one of nomenclature 
and in no way affects the 
continuity of the publica- 
tion or the number of issues 
that subscribers will receive. 



so that the trend in the average national 
income per head of population can be estab- 
lished. 

Again, changes in the marriage rate and in 
the birth rate are of considerable importance 
in forecasting the probable level of construction 
activity, with its important bearing on other 
economic activities. An increase in the number 
of marriages is likely to mean that more homes 
will be needed, and an increase in the birth 
rate indicates that attendance 
at primary schools will in- 
crease in five or six years time 
and at high schools in thir- 
teen or fourteen years, and 
that the demand for other 
facilities will tend to. rise as 
time goes on. The effect of a 
decrease in the marriage or 
birth rate will obviously have 
the opposite implications. 
(The chart on page iv shows 
the trend in the Canadian 
birth and death rates and the 
rate of natural increase 
during the past 23 years.) 



Other factors, of course, 
have to be taken into account 
when estimating the effects 
of these changes. For 
example, the incidence of 
marriages on the demand 
for houses is apt to be less 
during a depression because 
the couple may for a time live with one of their 
families. The pressure on schools is apt to 
follow fairly closely a rise in the birth rate, 
taking the country as a whole, but for partic- 
ular localities it may be intensified or mini- 
mized by movements of population from one 
area to another. Nevertheless, a knowledge 
of population trends, of changes in the birth 
and death rates, and of interprovincial shifts 
promotes a clearer and more accurate inter- 
pretation of developments in the Canadian 
economy. 



How the Statistics Are Collected 
and Compiled 

As provided under the Statistics Act of 1918, 
which established the Dominion Bureau of 
Statistics, and as the result of two Dominion- 
Provincial Conferences on vital statistics held 
at Ottawa in June and December, 1918, a plan 
was devised whereby the Dominion Bureau of 
Statistics and the vital statistics offices in 
each province would co-operate in the produc- 
tion of national vital statistics. Under this 
national system, while registration of births, 
still-births, marriages and deaths was to be 
carried out as heretofore by the provincial 
authorities, the legislation of each province 
conformed in essential features to a Model 
Vital Statistics Act — one of the features of 
which was compulsory registration — adopted 
by the 1918 Conference. Each province now 
has its own Act; it has complete jurisdiction 
over the registration of vital events and operates 
under its particular Act according to its own 
particular needs and policies. However, by 
virtue of the 1918 Dominion-Provincial agree- 
ment, vital statistics can be compiled on a 
uniform basis for the Dominion as a whole. 

Modern equipment and organization has 
been applied during the past few years to give 
Canada one of the most up-to-date systems of 
recording vital statistics. This was necessary 
because of the urgent demands for making 
information from the registrations more readily 
and currently available. The registration rec- 
ords are microfilmed at the provincial vital 
statistics offices and forwarded to the Bureau 
at regular periods for two purposes; first, the 
preparation of indexes containing the name of 
the individual, the place and date of the birth, 
marriage or death, and other essential facts; 
and second, the compilation and tabulation of 
national statistics of births, stillbirths, mar- 
riages and deaths (including causes of death), 
which are published by numerous classifi- 
cations and cross-classifications, as will be 
discussed later. 

Up to 1944 vital statistics were compiled 
according to the place or province in which 
the births, marriages or deaths occurred; 
since that time birth statistics have been 
compiled according to the place of residence of 
the parents of the child and deaths according 



to the place of residence of the deceased. This 
change is of great importance in social analysis. 
For example, to study the relative trends in 
rural and urban fertility one needs to know 
the residence of the parents rather than the 
fact that the mother chose to go into a city or 
town hospital to have her baby. Equally, in 
compiling comparative figures of provincial 
birth and death rates, place of residence and 
not place of occurrence is the important fact. 

Figures on divorce are received through the 
co-operation of the provincial authorities; 
however statistics of divorces granted to 
Quebec residents are supplied by the Clerk of 
the Divorce Committee of the Senate of 
Canada. The national reporting of commu- 
nicable diseases was undertaken by the Domi- 
nion Bureau of Statistics in 1933 at the request 
of the Department of Pensions and National 
Health and in co-operation with the provincial 
departments of health. The provincial depart- 
ments forward to the Bureau weekly state- 
ments of the number of communicable diseases 
reported, which are then compiled and 
published for the Dominion as a whole. 

Annual Estimates of Population 

The method used in calculating the number 
of people in Canada in the years between the 
censuses is in effect a population accounting 
system, with the census providing a fresh 
starting point every tenth year. For each year 
the number of births and immigrants during 
the year (the latter recorded by the Immigra- 
tion Branch of the Department of Mines and 
Resources) provides the gross increase, and from 
this the number of deaths and Canadian emi- 
grants are deducted to give the net increase. 
The volume of emigration is obtained from 
records of the U.S. and U.K. Governments 
giving the number of Canadians entering those 
countries, plus an estimate made by the Bureau 
of those leaving Canada for other countries. 
This calculation may be carried out separately 
for each age group and each sex in the country. 

The calculation of provincial populations is 
somewhat more difficult than for- Canada as a 
whole, particularly for years in which there is 
a large movement of population within the 
country. Until 1947 there was no uniform 
meth od of estimating interprovincial move- 
ments, and ration card counts, school popula- 



n 



tions and other indicators were each resorted 
to at different times. Starting in 1947, however, 
the regular June labour force survey was enlarged 
so as to ask each person interviewed where he 
was living twelve months previously, and from 
this material reliable estimates of the gross 
and net interprovincial movements are made. 1 
These, together with figures for births and 
deaths in each province, permit estimates of 
provincial populations to be calculated along 
the lines described above. 

Reports on Vital Statistics 

The Monthly Report on Births, Marriages 
and Deaths gives the total of each event regis- 
tered during the month, by provinces and for 
Canada as a whole, while another monthly 
report, Registration of Births, Deaths and 
Marriages gives this information by cities and 
towns for all those places with a population of 
10,000 or over. These two reports will shortly 
be combined to form one publication. Figures 
taken from the first of these reports, together 
with population estimates, will be found in 
table 4 of the Canadian Statistical Review. A 
quarterly Premilinary Report on Births, Deaths 
and Marriages gives a summary of births, deaths 
and marriages occurring in each quarter of the 
year, by provinces. The report also includes 
special tabulations of infant, neo-natal, and 
maternal deaths and cross-classifications of 
general mortality by causes of death. 

Three annual reports are issued. The first to 
appear in the Preliminary Annufd Report, Vital 
Statistics of Canada, Tentative Figures. It is 
published shortly after the close of the year and 
contains tables of births, deaths and marriages, 
infant and maternal deaths, and the number 
of communicable diseases. Certain of the infor- 
mation is listed for the larger cities. The Preli- 
minary Annual Report, Vital Statistics of 
Canada, Final Figures, is, as the name implies, 
the final tabulation in summary form, and is 
a revised and enlarged version of the former 
report, containing an extensive section on the 
causes of death. The final report, entitled 



(1) The technique employed in making labour force 
surveys and estimates was described in the April, 1948 
issue of the Canadian Statistical Review. 



simply Vital Statistics, represents a detailed 
report with extensive cross-classifications and 
tabulations. It contains over 700 pages of com- 
parative and analytical tables giving a wealth 
of information on births, marriages, deaths, 
and communicable diseases. 

Other Reports 

Intercensal estimates of population are pub- 
lished in the late summer of each year in a 
one-page mimeographed report Population of 
Canada, by Provinces, Estimated for Intercensal 
Years. An extension of this publication is a 
special report Census and Estimated Popula- 
tions of Canada and the Provinces by Sex and 
Age Groups 1931-48 which was issued to meet 
the requirements of provincial and municipal 
health authorities and will be kept up-to-date. 

The report on Dissolution of Marriages (Di- 
vorces) in Canada gives in addition to divorce 
rates and cross-classifications by sex of divor- 
cees in each province statistics on the remar- 
riage of divorced persons, and comparisons 
between Canada and other countries in respect 
to number of dissolutions, covering the last 
two decades. 

A number of special reports have also been 
issued. Violent Deaths in Canada gives the 
number and rates of suicides, homicides and 
accidental deaths. Cancer Mortality in Canada 
covers the period 1921-44 and gives the rates, 
effects of age and sex distribvition, sites of 
disease and geographical incidence. The Vital 
Statistics Handbook and Physician's Pocket 
Reference to the International List of Causes 
of Death are printed booklets designed primarily 
for the information and guidance of profes- 
sional groups. The Health Reference Book 
includes a compilation of statistical data and 
background material concerning Canadian 
health services, a review of Dominion, provin- 
cial and local health programs and related 
financial information. Canadian Life Tables 
have been published three times ; the third was 
for 1945 and the fourth, for 1947, is now in the 
process of preparation. They are based on popu- 
lation and death figures and show how a con- 
ventional number of births (usually 100,000) 
is, age by age, reduced by deaths.

Current Economic Conditions 



Since the last issue of this Review some 
indicators of trends in industrial and trade 
activities have remained stable or receded 
slightly but most have continued to move 
upward. The cost-of-living index which had 
remained unchanged from October 1 to 
November 1 at 159.6 declined to 158.9 as at 
December 1. This was the first decline since 
September, 1945, apart from a drop of 0.1 on 
January 1, 1947. The fall was entirely in the 
price of foodstuffs, with all other items remain- 
ing stable or rising slightly. The food index 
stood at 202.0 on December 1 compared with 
204.7 on November 1 and 205.4 on October 1. 

The seasonally adjusted index of the physical 
volume of production (1935-1939 = 100) stood 
at 185.5 for November, almost unchanged from 
the October revised figure of 185.4. This is the 
highest peacetime figure achieved in the history 
of the country. The comparable figure for 
November, 1947, was 177.8. The index of manu- 
facturing production stood at 197.3 for Novem- 
ber compared to 197.1 for October with that 
for non-durable products rising from 181.4 
to 183.6 while the durable goods mark declined 
from 223.9 to 220.9. The index of electrical 
power production was off rather sharply at 
157.1 as compared with 165.4, the figure for 
October. The November, 1947, mark was 156.0. 

A survey of the civilian labour force indicates 
that between September 4 and November 20 
it dropped from an estimated 5,109,000 to 
4,964,000, thus falling below an estimated five 
million for the first time since the survey made 
in February, 1948. The return of a substantial 
number of previously employable persons 
between the ages of 14 and 21 years to school 
or college and the seasonal movement of women 
from farm work to housekeeping were, it is 
thought, the prime contributory factors in 
this reduction. Although there was an increase 
of 75,000 in employment in non -agricultural 
activities during the period covered by the 
survey, total unemployment increased by 
approximately 40,000 to reach an estimated 
106,000. The number of persons employed in 
agricultural pursuits dropped, as a result of 
the seasonal decline in farming activities, from 
an estimated 1,250,000 to about 986,000. 

Canadian labour income for the month of 
October was estimated at $637 million. This 
is $27 million lower than the estimated $664 



million for September but the latter included 
payment of $31 million in retroactive wages to 
the employees of the Canadian railway systems. 
Apart from this lump-payment in September, 
the October figure would be a new high for 
any single month. The ten-month payments 
of wages, salaries and supplemental labour 
income is estimated at $5,879 million, about 
15 per cent above the $5,117 million for the 
same period of 1947. 

Both employment and payrolls in the eight 
major industries reached new high levels on 
November 1. The employment index (June 1, 
1941 = 100) was at 133.3, up from 133.1 on 
October 1 and 129.5 for November, 1947; aggre- 
gate weekly payrolls (on the same base) stood 
at 217.8 compared with 215.7 for October and 
189.7 for November, 1947; and average weekly 
earnings were $42.16 for November, up from 
$41.80 for October and $37.79 for November, 
1947. On June 1, 1941, they were $25.25. 

Over 75,000 New Dwelling Units 

New dwelling units completed during 1948 
will certainly exceed 75,000 and will probably 
reach the 76,500 mark, on the basis of the most 
recent Dominion Bureau of Statistics housing 
survey. The construction industry started its 
1948 operations with 42,215 units under con- 
struction and by November 30 had completed 
68,103 units with a further 61,093 still under 
construction. A "dwelling unit" for the pur- 
poses of the survey is defined as the living 
quarters occupied by one household or family. 
Thus the number of dwelling units in any one 
structure is the number of separate households 
it is designed to accommodate. 

During November 21 per cent of all comple- 
tions were built, from start to finish, within 
90 days and a further 50 per cent between 90 
and 180 days. Thus many of the 61,093 units 
under construction at November 30 should 
have been brought to completion during the 
month of December. A survey of the comple- 
tions for this month has not, however, as yet 
been completed. Further strengthening the 
estimate of over 75,000 completions for 1948, 
is the known fact that, for obvious reasons, 
stress, during the winter months, is placed on 
completing dwellings under construction 
rather than on initiating new work. Dwelling 
units completed during the three previous

years totalled 42,617 in 1945; 60,575 in 1946 and 
72,346 in 1947. 

The estimate of new dwelling units com- 
pleted does not take into account the conver- 
sion, to house a greater number of households, 
of already existing buildings. Such conver- 
sions during 1947 have been estimated as 
housing for an additional 7,013 families, with 
the two earlier years showing considerably 
smaller totals. A preliminary estimate places 
the number of units provided through con- 
version in 1948 at slightly over 5,000. 

Travellers Influence Dollar Exchange 

A net credit of approximately $158 million in 
visiting Americans' expenditure in Canada 
over Canadian travel spending in the United 
States during 1948 was an appreciable factor 
in the improvement of our dollar position. 
American visitors to Canada, some of them 
entering this country for other purposes but 
the majority being tourists, spent during the 
past year about $270 million during their stay 
while Canadians on similar trips to the United 
States spent approximately $112 million. 

American expenditures in Canada set a new 
high record during the past year. Only in the 
years 1946 and 1947 have U.S. spendings on 
travel in Canada totalled more than $200 
million, when they were $216 and $241 million 
respectively. Canadian expenditures in the 
United States, however, were sharply down in 
1948 from the totals of $130 million in 1946 and 
$152 million in 1947, due mainly to the restric- 
tions on the amount of money available to 
Canadians visiting the United States and to 
the suspension — now removed — of the customs 
regulation whereby $100 worth of goods could 
be brought into this country free of duty by a 
traveller who remained out of Canada for more 
than 48 hours. 

As a result of the simultaneous increase in 
American spendings in Canada and decrease in 
Canadian expenditure in the United States the 
spread between these, or the net credit in 
Canada's favour, exceeded any previously re- 
corded. Only in the years 1929 and 1930 has 
this credit reached $100 million and the $158 
million recorded last year is slightly more than 
double the $78 million average for the last 23 
years. The credits accruing to Canada during 
the years 1946 and 1947 amounted to $86 million 
and $90 million respectively. 

As a source of U.S. dollars the international 
travel industry has, in recent years, ranked 



VI 



second only to the export of newsprint, and the 
industry of catering to and supplying American 
visitors to Canada has become one of major 
importance. During the period 1926-1948 in- 
clusive, it has been estimated that American 
visitors have spent in Canada approximately 
$3.3 billion while Canadians have spent 
in the U.S. about $1.5 billion. 

Secondary Advantages Gained 

While the primary importance of American 
travelling in Canada at the present time is the 
gain of U.S. dollars it involves there are, never- 
theless, secondary effects, economic, political 
and cultural of great value to this country. The 
influx of American visitors to Canada has given 
the United States a better understanding of 
our country, its contribution to the war effort, 
its relation to the Commonwealth of Nations, 
and its immediate problems. 

Further, expenditures by those of the visitors 
who may properly be classed as "tourists" are 
made primarily in those parts of the country 
which, while scenically attractive have few 
other sources of revenue. In these areas hotels 
and cabins have been built with a consequent 
employment of labour; good roads have been 
built to the advantage of all residents; stores 
and shops carry, to the advantage of all, a large 
variety of goods to offer the visitors; and, most 
important, much remunerative work is found 
in supplying goods and services to the tourists. 
It can indeed be said that through the tourist 
trade the whole standard of living in large 
areas of Canada has been raised. 

Mineral Production at All Time High 

Canada's mines, wells and quarries produced 
during 1948 minerals which had a dollar value 
greatly exceeding that attained in any previous 
year. Estimates, supplied by the producers 
and combined by the Bureau of Statistics, 
indicate that the value of the 1948 mineral 
output will exceed $806 million, an increase of 
25 per cent over the previous record of approx- 
imately $645 million attained in 1947. Higher 
values per unit produced and increased volume 
of production combined to bring about the 
new figure. 

The accompanying table shows, for those 
ten minerals which had in 1948 production 
valued in excess of $25 million, and which make 
up 84.5 per cent of the entire 1948 production 
by value, the 1947 and 1948 volumes of produc- 
tion and the rates of increase in the latter as 
compared with the former year together with

the dollar values and rates of increase for the

(except, of course, gold where the value was un- 
changed at $35 per fine ounce) the 1948 increase 
over 1947 in dollar value has been greater than 
the increase in volume of output. This, ob- 
viously, has been caused by an increase in the

increase in the number of units produced.

course, are not exported in any appreciable 
quantity but any increase in the volume of

imports from the United States and the con- 
sequent expenditure of American currency.

Although the dollar value of all minerals 
listed above was greater in 1948 than in any 
other year (except in the case of gold where 
the 1941 output was valued at $205,789,392) 
the output by volume was not, in most cases, 
the greatest ever recorded. Below are listed the 
maximum volume output and the year it was 
reached for those items listed above which did 
not have record outputs in 1948: gold 5.3 
million oz. (1941), copper 655.6 million lbs. 
(1940), nickel 288.0 million lbs. (1943), zinc 
610.8 million lbs. (1943), lead 512.1 million lbs. 
(1942), and coal 18.9 million tons (1942). 

The value of all metals produced (including 
those not shown in the above table) increased 
22.4 per cent and that of mineral fuels 43.7 
per cent. These increases were of considerable 
assistance in Canada's effort to rectify her U.S. 
dollar exchange position. Much of Canada's 
metal production, particularly of gold, copper, 
nickel, lead, and zinc, is exported, with a very 
considerable portion of the exports going to 
the United States to be paid for in American 
dollars or going to those countries which under 
special arrangements pay for some essential 



year of 1942 reflects the recent development of 
the oilfields in Northern Alberta. Many com- 
petent observers believe that these fields will in 
the near future, perhaps in the current year, 
place a major portion of Western Canada in a 
position where it will be free of the necessity 
of importing gasoline from the United States. 
To a lesser extent the increased coal production 
will augment Canada's fuel supply, although 
because of haulage costs it is in some parts of 
the country economical to import American 
coal even though Canadian coal is available. 

Ontario, with production valued at $286.7 
million, maintained her primacy among the 
mineral producing provinces, having 35.6 per 
cent of the total production. This was a lower 
proportion of the total than in either 1946 or 
1947, when it was 38.1 per cent and 38.7 per cent 
respectively. British Columbia with 18.3 per 
cent of the total and Quebec with 18.2 per cent 
ranked second and third among the provinces 
while Alberta was fourth with 11.5 per cent. 
It is noteworthy that Alberta's production of 
minerals was almost entirely limited to the 
three fuels coal, natural gas and petroleum.

(1) Monthly figures for Saskatchewan include all the power produced by the Churchill River power plant. Annual 
data up to 1946 reflect the fact that most of this power is consumed at Flin Flon just across the provincial 



border in Manitoba, 
on a monthly basis. 



The information required to compensate for this flow of power is not available

(1) Excluding producers' interchange. 

(2> Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 
'Prior to 1946, imports include castings and forgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 
addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after refinishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

Note: Coverage was increased in 1947, the provincial distribution for 204 municipalities being shown above. 
The collection was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, minor revision being required in the table, 
due to the non-receipt of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity 
outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits but a number of 
projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant 
and considerable change may develop before the completion of the operation.

Includes imports to the end of 1947-48 while in 1948-49 wheat imports are taken in as monthly data become 

available; inward shipments of oats and barley will be added at the end of the crop year. 
Figures of customs exports for 1945-46 and 1946-47 are adjusted to reflect actual physical movements from 

Canada. Previous to 1945-46 adjusted figures are not available. The statistics for 1947-48 are customs 

exports and will be adjusted when reguired information is available. 
Prior to 1936-37 Canadian customs figures are used. From 1936-37 to date, exports consist of overseas clearances 

plus U.S. imports for consumption. 
Includes customs exports of Canadian oatmeal and rolled oats.

Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transactions, — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout.

(1) The annual statistics embrace all steam railways, while monthly data refer to railways with annual operating 

revenues of $500,000 or over. 
<2) Operating income equals operating revenues less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent of 

equipment and joint facilities. 
(3) For the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific, retroactive wage increases, totalling $29,085,087, paid in 

September, were not included in that month's operating expenses. Payrolls as now reported monthly are 

according to the new wage scales.

Employment, Payrolls and Earnings 



The Dominion Bureau of Statistics collects, 
compiles and publishes monthly statistics on 
employment, salaries and wages, average weekly 
and hourly earnings, and average hours worked, 
and the proportion of men and women, in the 
leading non -agricultural industries of Canada. 
The figures are from concerns employing fifteen 
or more persons; the industries covered are 
manufacturing, logging, mining, communi- 
cations, transportation, construction and 
maintenance, trade, finance, and services. 
The coverage extends to all branches of these 
industries except in the case of services, which 
includes chiefly hotels, restaurants, laundries 
and dry cleaning plants. The statistics appear 
in summary form in tables 9 to 14 (pages 21 to 
,39) of the Canadian Statistical Review, and are 
published in more detail in three monthly and 
one annual reports, listed at the end of this 
article. 

All of these series are of considerable value as 
guides both in assessing general economic 
trends and in helping management, labour and 
other economic groups to solve specific prob- 
lems. Some of their uses will be discussed later 
in this article following a brief description of 
the statistics themselves. 

Employment and Payrolls 

Employment statistics have been collected 
since 1920. Until 1941 the employer was asked 
to state the number of persons at work on the 
last work day of each month, but when 
statistics of payrolls were introduced in the 
spring of 1941, it became necessary to ask for 
nformation showing the number of employees 
>n the payrolls in the last pay period of the 
nonth, in order to relate the employment 
igures to the salaries and wages. Changing the 



recording date for the employment statistics 
from the last working day to the last pay 
period of the month caused some change in 
coverage of persons employed in individual 
establishments, since the number drawing pay 
in a given pay period will usually exceed the 
number working on a given day. Steps were 
taken, however, to make adjustments for these 
differences and to put the employment figures 
subsequent to the spring of 1941 on a basis as 
comparable as possible with the previous 
figures. 

A comparison of the industrial coverage of 
the employees represented in the index number 
with total figures for wage-earners and salaried 
employees available from the Decennial Census 
and the Annual Census of Industry indicates 
that the monthly survey's coverage of total 
employment ranges from about 51 p.c. in 
hotels and restaurants and laundries and dry 
cleaning plants, and 55 p.c. in retail trade, to 
85 p.c. in mining and 88 p.c. in manufacturing. 
The Bureau makes every effort to see that it 
obtains reports from all firms of fifteen em- 
ployees and over in the industries covered. 
Numerous sources of information regarding 
industrial developments are carefully watched 
to make sure that new firms are incorporated 
into the calculations as soon as operations 
begin. 

The statistics of employment cover all 
salaried employees and wage-earners of the 
co-operating firms, including full time and 
part time workers. Separate figures of employ- 
ment are compiled monthly for men and 
women. The tabulated payrolls include gross 
salaries and wages before deductions are made 
by the management for taxes, unemployment 
insurance contributions, etc. They also include 



cost-of-living allowances, commissions, incen- 
tive or production bonuses, and other bonuses 
currently paid. 

Average Hours Worked and Average 
Hourly Earnings 

From the end of 1944, statistics of man- 
hours and average earnings of wage-earners 
have been obtained in connection with the 
monthly surveys of employment and payrolls. 
These data cover a rather smaller number of 
companies and workers than those of employ- 
ment and payrolls and average weekly salaries 
and wages, since they relate mainly to wage- 
earners employed at hourly rates, i.e., largely 
to production workers. In many cases, statis- 
tics of man-hours are not available for certain 
classes of wage-earners, whose earnings are not 
directly dependent upon the number of hours 
worked examples of such exclusions are 

route drivers, piece-workers in some but not all 
establishments, truck men, etc. Again, some 
employers do not keep a record of man-hours 
for any classes of employees. In manufacturing, 
the statistics of man-hours relate to approx- 
imately 81 per cent of all wage-earners 
reported to the Annual Census of Manu- 
facturers. 

The statistics of hours worked include over- 
time hours worked as well as the hours of part- 
time and casual workers; they also include 
hours credited to persons absent on leave with 
pay. The wages reported represent gross 
earnings before deductions for taxes, unem- 
ployment insurance, etc., including incentive 
and production bonuses and overtime pay- 
ments. They do not include the value of board 
and lodging which in some cases is part of the 
remuneration of workers. 

Usefulness of These Series 

The index of employment is a valuable 
monthly indicator of employment trends in a 
large and most significant sector of the econ- 
omy. It should not, of course, be confused 
with the employment figures estimated on a 
quarterly basis by the Labour Force Survey, 
for it covers only the industries already men- 
tioned and therefore omits certain economic 
groups such as agriculture, government ser- 
vices, education and the self-employed. The 



index of payrolls is another important economic 
barometer, reflecting, in addition to changes 
in the volume and the industrial and sex 
distribution of employment, changes in rates 
of pay, hours of work and the amount of over- 
time at premium rates. 

In using the index numbers of employment 
and payrolls to show trends in particular 
industries, it should be borne in mind that the 
figures relate to establishments employing 
15 persons or more; in most cases they repre- 
sent the greater part of the industry, but in 
others an important segment may be omitted. 
This, of course, is of no significance when the 
trend of employment and payrolls is the same 
in small businesses as in the larger enterprises. 
Although it is conceivable* that economic 
circumstances might arise where the move- 
ments in the smaller firms would differ 
markedly from those in the medium and 
larger establishments, certain studies made 
during the war years (a period of severe test) 
indicate that in fact the trends of employment 
in the two groups are generally similar. 

Since figures of average weekly salaries and 
wages reflect fluctuations in the purchasing 
power of large proportions of the wage-earning 
population, they are useful for a variety of 
practical purposes. Sales and advertising 
organizations frequently make use of them 
when studying markets for particular products; 
the figures showing the numbers and propor- 
tions of male and female employees reported 
in various industries or localities, are also 
commonly used for that purpose. They are 
used by credit organizations as a factor in 
assessing the margin of safety in instalment 
buying in particular areas. Businessmen 
planning to open new establishments will 
examine the figures of sex distribution for 
various industries and areas to get an idea of 
the availability of workers suitable for their 
needs, and the relative costs. The scale of 
earnings in particular centres as reflected in the 
current statistics will be considered, along as 
with other factors, by retailers in deciding the 
size of outlets which they intend to establish. 

Average Hourly and Weekly Earnings 

Like the statistics of average salaries and 
wages, the figures of average hourly earnings 
and weekly wages are used for a variety of 



n 



purposes. They immediately reflect changes in 
labour costs, which are, of course, a significant 
economic factor, as well as of particular 
concern to individual industries. In the latter 
connection, a number of establishments, lar- 
gely in the heavy manufacturing industries, 
make a practice of placing an "escalator" 
clause in their long-term contracts, by which 
the payment for the product will vary according 
to the costs of labour and materials. The 
Bureau of Statistics' figures of average hourly 
earnings in the industry in question are used, 
together with the wholesale price index num- 
bers, to measure these changes. 

Even more frequently than the statistics of 
average weekly earnings, the figures of average 
hourly earnings are used by businessmen 
gathering background information on which 
to decide the location of new establishments. 
They form the basis of numerous international 
comparisons, and are widely used in cost- 
accounting. They are very commonly used in 
negotiating wage agreements, as indicating 
variations from the average in the establish- 
ments involved, and also differences in earnings 
in the same industry in different parts of the 
country. In this connection, it is important to 
distinguish between the statistics of average 
earnings and those of wage rates and wage rate 
index numbers, as published annually by the 
Department of Labour. 

In comparing average earnings in different 
industries, or even in the same industry over a 
lengthy period of time, consideration should 
be given to several important factors, such as 
sex, age and occupational differentials. For 
example, if one industry has a large proportion 
of female, or of unskilled labour, and another 
has a large proportion of male, or of skilled 
labour, the average earnings in the first indus- 
try will be substantially lower than those in the 
second, even if the rates of pay for workers of 
the same skill and the same sex and age group 
were identical in both industries. Again, in 
periods of expanding employment, the dilution 
of labour will frequently have a marked effect 
upon the figures of average earnings, as the 
proportions of unskilled or semi-skilled workers 
increase, although the wage rates remain 
constant. Furthermore, hourly earnings in- 



clude any overtime pay, the amount of which 
will vary from time to time and industry to 
industry. 

Reports Issued 

The first report to appear is a short release 
entitled Advance Statement on Employment 
and Weekly Earnings, which gives the employ- 
ment index for the latest month by provinces 
and for Canada as a whole and the latest index 
of payrolls and figures of weekly earnings. This 
is followed by a monthly report The Employ- 
ment Situation at the Beginning of (December, 
1948) Together with Payrolls for the Last Week 
in [November, 1918). This report gives the 
indexes of employment and payrolls and 
average weekly salaries and wages broken 
down by industry in quite considerable detail 
and also classified by major industries for the 
provinces and for the leading industries in 22 of 
the larger cities. In addition, this report 
includes tables on the sex distribution in 
various areas and industries. 

A few days later, another report Statistics 
of Average Hours W orked and Average Hourly 
Earnings as Reported at the Beginning of 
(December, 1948) is published. This contains 
tables showing in considerable detail the 
average hours worked, average hourly earnings, 
and average weekly wages by industries, and 
also textual discussion of the statistics. The 
information is published by provinces and by 
certain leading cities. 

The Annual Review of Employment and 
Payrolls in Canada contains a considerable 
volume of tables, charts, and text recapitulating 
and analysing the material published in the 
monthly reports, and giving historical back- 
ground. In addition, a Chart Book of Employ- 
ment and Payrolls in Canadian Industries is 
published periodically. A special annual 
report is now being prepared giving detailed 
information on Hours of Work and Hourly 
and Weekly Earnings of Male and Female 
Wage-Earners and Salaried Employees Reported 
by Leading Manufacturers, the data resulting 
from an analysis of the time and payroll 
records for one week in the autumn of each 
year.

Current Economic Conditions 



Current indicators of economic conditions do 
not show any marked changes in either direc- 
tion. The seasonally adjusted index of indus- 
trial production has remained remarkably 
stable, standing at 185.4 for October, 185.2 
for November, and 185.3 for December. In- 
dustrial employment, as reported by over 19,000 
leading industrial establishments, reached an 
all time high on December 1 with the index 
(1926 = 100) standing at 204.1. This figure, 
however, was very slightly above the November 
level of 203.6 and only about two per cent 
above the December, 1947, figure of 199.6. 

The cost-of-living index advanced slightly 
between December 1, 1948 and January 3, 1949, 
from 158.9 to 159.6. The January 2, 1948, 
figure was 148.3. The general index of whole- 
sale prices for January, 1949, stood at 159.3 
compared to the 159.5 and 159.7 recorded for 
December and November of 1948. 

The index of farm prices of agricultural 
products for December was estimated at 251.6 
as compared with 250.1 for November (base 
1935-39 = 100;. This rise in the index reverses 
the autumn's trend under which it had fallen 
for three consecutive months following the 
.establishment of a new high mark of 256.0 in 
August last. The 1948 monthly average of this 
index was 244.2, over 40 points above the 1947 
monthly average. 

Railway revenue freight loadings during the 
calendar year just ended totalled 111 million 
tons, a new high record and 1.9 per cent above 
the loadings for the previous year. During the 
month of January, 1949, this upward trend was 
reversed and loadings stood at 8.1 million tons 
as compared with 8.3 million tons during the 
same month of the previous year. 

In connection with the comment made in 
this article last month on the tourist trade it 
is interesting to note that the number of 
foreign vehicles entering Canada on permit to 
remain in the country more than 48 hours 
totalled 32,590 during January, 1949. This 
figure is 15.4 per cent above the January, 1948, 
total of 28,243 which was in turn 16.2 per cent 
above the 24,306 admitted in January, 1947. 

More new dwelling units were completed in 
1948 than in any other year in Canadian 
listory. This was forecast in the November 



issue of the Canadian Statistical Review and 
more complete returns than were then available 
confirm the estimate. 81,243 dwelling units are 
reported as being completed during the year. 
Of these 76,097 are in new structures and 
5,146 in converted ones. From the type of 
dwelling units being constructed it is estimated 
that 75 per cent of them will be owner-occupied. 
40 per cent of the rental units completed were 
built under the management of Central 
Housing and Mortgage Corporation. The 
construction industry started the calendar 
year with 56,456 units under construction as 
compared with 42,215 underway at the start of 
the year 1948. 

Gross National Product 
and Expenditure 

Examination of the recently published pre- 
liminary estimate of the National Accounts — 
Income and Expenditure — for 1948 shows that 
the gross national product was valued at $15.4 
billion as compared with $13.4 billion in 1947 
and $11.9 billion in 1946. Since the estimate is 
expressed in dollar values it is clear that any 
rise in prices will be reflected in an increase in 
gross national product. Thus since prices, as 
exemplified by the cost-of-living index, in- 
creased 1947 to 1948 by about 14 per cent and 
1946 to 1947 by 10 per cent and the value of the 
gross national product advanced during the 
same periods by about 15 per cent and 13 per 
cent it is clear that, while there has been some 
real gain in production, the increases in the 
value of the GNP are largely the result of 
higher prices. 

The net national income amounted to $12.8 
billion in 1948, $11.0 billion in 1947 and $9.8 
billion in 1946. The components of the national 
income tend to fluctuate in importance with 
the economic health of the country. Thus the 
percentage of the national income earned by 
investment advances in periods of high income 
and declines in years of low income. Obversely, 
wages and salaries will account for a greater 
proportion of the national income when other 
factors such as investment income and farm 
returns are low. These facts are illustrated by 
a review of the fluctuations in the ratio that 
wages and salaries (including military pay and 
allowances) has borne to the whole national 



income. Averaging 56 per cent in 1926-28 it 
rose to 75 per cent in 1933 and since that date 
has slowly declined until in 1948 it was 56.4 
per cent. Investment income, on the other 
hand, stood at 17 per cent in 1929, dropped 
sharply to less than 8 per cent in 1932 and has 
since moved slowly upward to 21.0 per cent for 
1947 and 20.2 per cent for 1948. 

The steady increase in the industrialization 
of the country would tend, other things being 
equal, to reduce the portion of the national 
income earned by farm operators from farm 
production. However, during the last few years 
a combination of rising volume of production 
and price increases has offset this trend and 
has resulted in both relative and absolute in- 
creases. The net income of farm operators 
from farm production, including wheat par- 
ticipation payments, was $1.7 billion or 13.6 
per cent of the national income in 1948, $1.2 
billion or 11.3 per cent in 1947 and $1.1 billion 
or 11.6 per cent in 1946. The rate of increase in 
farm income 1948 over 1947 was 41 per cent. 

Personal expenditure on goods and services 
is estimated at $10 billion or 65.2 per cent of the 
gross national expenditure. While these 
expenditures increased from $8.9 billion in 
1947 and $7.9 billion in 1946 it is worthy of note 
that the proportion such expenditures bear to 
the total has declined from 66.5 per cent in 
1947 and 66.9 per cent in 1946. Consumer 
spending in 1948 was $1.1 billion or 12 per cent 
above that of 1947 but since prices as measured 
by the cost-of-living index increased during the 
same period by approximately 14 per cent a 
decline in real consumption is indicated. 

Government expenditures, after declining 
sharply in 1947 as compared to 1946, rose in 
dollar value in 1948. The figures for the three 
years were $1.8 billion in 1946, $1.5 billion in 
1947 and $1.7 billion in 1948. Here again the 
ratio of increase, about 13 per cent, approx- 
imately parallels the increasing prices. The 
ratio of government spendings to the gross 
national expenditure remained in 1948 un- 
changed from the approximately 11 per cent 
figure established in 1947. 

Gross home investment in plant, equipment 
and housing totalled $2.5 billion in 1948 as 
compared with $2.0 billion in 1947 and $1.3 
billion in 1946. While this component gained 
relative to the total expenditure the rate of 
increase, 1948, over 1947, was less than half of 
what it was in 1947 over 1946. Net additions to 



inventories at $0.6 billion in 1948 were consider- 
ably below those of $0.8 billion for the year 
earlier. 

Exports of goods and services rose to $4.0 
billion from $3.6 billion for the previous year 
while imports remained practically unchanged. 
There was thus for 1948 a substantial net 
foreign investment amounting to approx- 
imately $0.4 billion. 



American Developments 

The year just ended was by far the busiest in 
U.S. economic history. Employment, income, 
and industrial production all reached new high 
levels. There are, however, signs that in many 
instances the rate of advance started to decline 
in the last few months and that in others a 
definite shrinking is observable. 

Secretary of Agriculture Brannan recently 
reported that farm income for the year 1948 
was estimated at $17.8 billion, two per cent 
below the 1947 figure. This is the first reduction 
in farm income reported in ten years. Mr. 
Brannan, in testimony before a joint congres- 
sional committee, expressed the opinion that 
the peak of farm prosperity is probably past. 

A reduction, in January of this year, of the 
"composite price" for steel scrap from $43.00 
to $37.50 per ton was, in light of the world's 
hunger for steel, of peculiar significance. Under 
normal circumstances the price of steel usually 
fluctuates at the ratio of one to four with the 
price of scrap and thus an early reduction in 
the price of new deliveries of approximately 
$1.50 per ton might be expected. Competent 
observers in the industry, however, do not 
expect that any such reduction can take place 
owing in part to increases in other steel-making 
costs and to the operators fear of higher cor- 
porate taxes and further wage increase demands 
when present labour contracts expire in April 
next. 

Employed persons as of the first week in 
January numbered 57.5 million, down by ap- 
proximately two millions from the figure of 
59.5 million for the first week of December and 
four millions below the mid-summer all time 
high employment record. Although layoffs, 
December to January, were higher than in any 
month since the end of the war they were, at 
least in part, seasonal and the January, 1949, 
total of employed persons was approximately

300,000 above that of January, 1948. The total 
number of persons considered unemployed 
rose, December to January, by 0.7 million to 
reach 2.7 million, the highest figure attained 
in recent years and 0.6 million above the 
January, 1948, mark. Increases in both em- 
ployment and unemployment indicate, of 
course, an enlarged labour force. 

United States prices during the last three 
months of 1948 and January, 1949, followed a 
downward trend with the consumers price 
index (in general, similar to the Canadian cost- 
of-living index) showing three consecutive 
monthly declines and standing for December 
at 171.4. This index, like its Canadian counter- 
part, is based upon 1935-39 = 100. The U.S. 
Bureau of Labor Statistics weekly wholesale 
price index has also been moving lower and for 
the week ending February 8th stood at 156.9, 
back to the September, 1947, level. Since last 
October week to week fluctuations of this 
index have generally been downward. 

Retail trade was also adversely affected, with 
department store sales for the week ending 
February 5th standing at four per cent below 
those of a year earlier. The Federal Reserve 
Board's seasonally adjusted index of sales stood 
at 290 for January as compared with 309 for 
December and a twelve-month 1948 average of 
302. Two of the largest mail order houses 
reported business shrinkages of 10 and 11 per 
cent in January, 1949, compared with the same 
month of the previous year. 

As offsetting these unfavourable factors it 
should be noted that there are many indi- 
cations that U.S. industrial activity will con- 
tinue for some time to come on a very high 
level. Disposable income for the month of 
November was equivalent to a seasonally ad- 
justed annual rate of $197 billion, a new high 
record. The figure for November, 1947, was $179 
billion. The rate of increase, 1947 to 1948, was, 
therefore, 10 per cent and during the same 
period the consumers price index increased 
only 4.4 per cent. 

U.S. governmental expenditures on re-arma- 
ment and on the products needed for the 
European Recovery Plan are also expected to 
sustain markets and to provide industrial 
activity in sufficient quantity to guard against 
any serious unemployment situation. 



1949 World Wheat Outlook 

Unless abnormal weather conditions are 
encountered during the northern growing and 
harvesting season it is predicted on data pres- 
ently available that the world will reap an 
ample harvest of wheat during 1949. In the 
northern hemisphere, where at this time of 
year only very tentative estimates can be 
made, there are indications that acreage 
sown to wheat will exceed previous marks. 

The United States Department of Agriculture 
estimates that in that country 61.4 million 
acres were seeded with winter wheat. This is 
five per cent above last year's record figure and 
25 per cent greater than the last ten years' 
average. On the basis of December 1, 1948, 
conditions, the coming U.S t crop of winter 
wheat is forecast at 965 million bushels. 
Should this be realized plus an average crop of 
spring wheat the United States would for the 
third year in succession produce a crop of over 
1.2 billion bushels of wheat — a yield consider- 
ably over its normal domestic and export 
requirements. 

In Canada, too, there are substantial reasons 
for believing that the acreage seeded to wheat 
will exceed that of last year. Declines in the 
price of flaxseed and rye to-gether with the 
fact that the minimum initial payment to 
wheat growers has now been set at $1.75 a 
bushel are expected to cause significant acreage 
diversions from these crops to wheat. Further, 
if not too prolonged, a continuation of the 
present dry spell into the coming spring might 
cause the sowing of wheat at the expense of 
other grains which can not so well withstand 
the effects of moisture shortage. 

Trade estimates indicate that the crop now 
about to be harvested in Argentina will amount 
to between 150 and 180 million bushels, down 
from 250 million bushels in the previous year. 
Australia expects to reap 200 million bushels, 
20 million below last year, but still above 
the 1935-39 average of 170 million bushels. 

These adverse developments are, however, in 
some measure offset by forecasts from Euro- 
pean importing countries, from several of which 
have come reports indicating fall wheat sowings 
equalling or surpassing those of the previous 
year and fall weather conditions extremely 
favourable to seeding and germination.

(1) Monthly figures for Saskatchewan include all the power produced by the Churchill River power plant. Annual 
data up to 1946 reflect the fact that most of this power is consumed at Flin Flon just across the provincial 
border in Manitoba. The information required to compensate for this flow of power is not available 
on a monthly basis.

addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after rehnishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

"The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, minor revision still being required in the table, 
due to the non-receipt of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity 
outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits but a number of 
projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant 
and considerable change may develop before the completion of the operation.

Includes imports to the end of 1947-48 while in 1948-49 wheat imports are taken in as monthly data become 

available; inward shipments of oats and barley will be added at the end of the crop year. 
Figures of customs exports for 1945-46 and 1946-47 are adjusted to reflect actual physical movements from 

Canada. Previous to 1945-46 adjusted figures are not available. The statistics for 1947-48 are customs 

exports and will be adjusted when required information is available. 
Prior to 1936-37 Canadian customs figures are used. From 1936-37 to date, exports consist of overseas clearances 

plus U.S. imports for consumption. 
Includes customs exports of Canadian oatmeal and rolled oats.

'Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transactions, — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout. 

'■"'Official holdings of Gold and U.S. dollars are given as of end of month in Statistical Summary of the Bank of 
Canada. *See footnote of page 106.

Railway Statistics 



Railway statistics are always valuable barom- 
eters of economic conditions in a country. 
In Canada, however, they are of special signi- 
ficance, because the geographic structure of 
the country, the comparative paucity of 
population and the rugged terrain make us 
more dependent than almost any other country 
upon railroads for transportation. 

Canadian railroad statistics are compre- 
hensive, and fall into two main groups: those 
dealing with traffic — "car loadings" and 
"tonnage carried" etc. and those covering 
financial accounts. Traffic statistics throw 
light on economic activity both in the country 
as a whole, in specific industries and within 
regions. Car loadings have a particular impor- 
tance, because they are published weekly (as 
well as monthly) and are one of the few 
available weekly business indicators. These 
traffic figures also give a variety of information 
valuable to individual business men when 
facing specific problems. For example, produce 
merchants secure an idea of the movement to 
market of vegetable, fruit and dairy products; 
grain dealers, shipping interests, etc., have an 
indication of grain movement; while cattle 
loadings are most useful to packing houses and 
exporters. 

The financial statistics of the railroads are 
naturally of interest to brokerage houses, to 
investors in the privately-owned systems, and to 
analysts of government finance. Their impor- 

Eance, however, spreads a good deal wider than 
his, because the financial position of the roads 
s one of the considerations in determining the 
level of freight rates, and there is no section of 
the economy which is not directly or indirectly 
effected by this problem. 

Summary Tables in Canadian 
Statistical Review 

Statistics covering car loadings, tonnage 
v.uiled, financial operating returns, passengers 
rtrried, number of workers employed and wages 
>aM, etc. etc., are supplied to the Dominion 
tureau of Statistics by the individual rail- 
oads. These including American systems 
unning into this country, amount to thirty- 
wo, but eighteen of them own or control less 
han one hundred miles of track each. 

V summary of the principal figures appear in 
ables 52 and 53 of the Canadian Statistical 
tiiieu- (pp. 108 to 111). The first of these 



shows monthly car loadings of revenue freight 
loaded on Canadian railways by type of com- 
modity broken down into nineteen categories. 
While it is the usual practice in the Review's 
tabular matter to supply comparable data 
for the ten years immediately past and for 
certain key years going back to 1926, this has 
not been done in this table since increases in 
the capacity of cars and improved techniques 
of loading have been so great that car loadings 
are not comparable over a long term of years. 
Car loadings are, however, given for the last 
thirty-eight consecutive months thus allowing 
for short term comparisons and observation of 
the rather striking seasonal variations in 
activity. The prime cause of such variations is, 
of course, the movement to the head of the 
Lakes and to both seaboards of vast quantities 
of grain in the fall of each year after the prairie 
harvest. 

Table 53 presents in summary form the 
principal statistics available monthly on the 
financial results of the operations of the rail- 
ways (not including hotel, steamships, etc.) 
together with a statement of the revenue 
freight and number of passengers carried. The 
yearly data are for all railways operating in 
Canada while the monthly data are only for 
those with annual operating revenue of $500,000 
or over. These number sixteen, but during 
1947 their operating revenues were 98.9 per cent 
of the total reported by all thirty- two systems. 

The table shows revenues from both freight 
and passenger operations, operating expenses 
and net operating income for all systems and 
for the Canadian National and Canadian 
Pacific individually. Net operating income as 
shown in this table is not the difference 
between revenue and expenses since adjust- 
ment is made for tax accruals and for the 
rentals to be paid for the use of certain equip- 
ment and joint facilities. The amount of this 
adjustment is shown in the monthly report on 
operating revenues and expenses discussed 
below. 

W'eekly and Monthly Publications 

The weekly report Car Loadings shows the 
number of cars loaded with revenue freight 
from Sunday to Saturday for all of Canada and 
for the eastern and western divisions (the 
break comes immediately west of Fort William). 
It is published on the Friday following the 



close of the week. Car Loadings are broken 
down by material loaded and comparable 
data are given for the two previous weeks and 
for the closest week of the previous year. 
Cumulative totals are also given for the 
current and the two previous years. An index 
number, based on the 1935-39 averages, is 
quoted for each of the last six weeks of the 
current year and for similar periods in the 
previous year. The total number of car loads 
received from foreign connections (i.e. U.S. 
Lines or shipping originating in a foreign port) 
is. also shown. 

Railway Revenue Freight Loadings, appearing 
three weeks after the close of the month, is a 
monthly preliminary estimate of the number of 
cars and tons of freight loaded. Loadings for 
each available month of the current year and 
for each month of the seven previous years are 
shown both as absolute numbers and as 
expressed by an index number based on the 
1935-1939 period. 

The last in the series of monthly publications 
dealing with revenue freight is the Monthly 
Traffic Report of Railways of Canada, a very 
detailed discussion of freight carried expressed 
in terms of tonnage only. It sets forth the 
volume of freight loaded in Canada during the 
month, the tonnage received from foreign 
connections destined both for delivery in 
Canada and in transit to foreign points. It 
gives both the month's figures and the cumu- 
lative totals to date together with the increase 
or decrease in tonnage from similar periods of 
the earlier year. Terminations, that is freight 
unloaded at stations in Canada and that 
delivered to foreign connections, complete the 
picture. The breakdown into commodities is 
considerably finer than that used in the weekly 
Car Loadings and is under five main divisions 
and seventy-eight sub-divisions. 

The second portion of this publication shows 
tonnage loaded and unloaded in each of the 
provinces of Canada under a commodity break- 
down identical with that outlined above. 
These statistics can in no way be taken as 
covering all interprovincial trade, since they 
exclude transfers of commodities by truck or 
water. Neither do then indicate the provin- 
cial origin of tonnage unloaded. Nevertheless 
they throw a useful light on whether a province 
is a net importer or exporter of certain com- 
modities. 

The last of the monthly publications, Oper- 
ating Revenues, Expenses & Statistics- Railways 
in Canada with Annual Operating Revenues 



of $500,000 or Over, is published about sixty 
days after the close of the month. This 
presents in detailed form the material sum- 
marized in table 53 of the Review. It gives both 
financial and general operating statistics for 
all railways combined (subject to the $500,000 
revenue reservation) and for the two largest 
Canadian systems individually. 

Annual Publications 

Several annual reports are also published. 
The Summary of Monthly Railway Traffic 
Reports is, as its title indicates, primarily a 
condensation of the monthly report already 
discussed but it contains in addition two 
rather interesting tables not elsewhere publish- 
ed. The first of these discusses, under the 
usual commodity breakdown, -the freight ori- 
ginating and terminating in the area covered 
by the three maritime provinces of Prince 
Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Bruns- 
wick. The second table deals similarly with 
origins and terminations in the western prov- 
inces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, 
and British Columbia, considered as a single 
entity. From these data net import from, and 
exports to the rest of Canada may be deter- 
mined. 

Statistics of Steam Railways in Canada 
is a complete presentation of all available 
statistical material on railway operations. It is 
issued about eight or nine months after the 
close of the year and contains in expanded 
form all the material to be found in the reports 
discussed above together with detailed reports 
on the financial structure of operating com- 
panies, numbers of employees and their 
earnings, analyses of fuel costs, maintenance 
costs, expansion costs, taxes paid, reports or 
accidents and deaths of or injuries to botl 
passengers and employees, etc. The curren 
volume for the year ending December 31, 1947 
consists of three pages of explanatory text an< 
nineteen tables presented on 134 pages. 

In addition, the Bureau of Statistics issue 
Canadian National Railways (1923-1947 ) an 
Canadian Pacific Railway (1923-1947). Thes 
present a brief historical survey of the revenue 
and expenses of the two systems and a con 
densation of operational statistics over th 
twenty-five year period since the incorporatio 
of the C.N.R. They are revised each year f 
include the latest annual data and the C.P.I 
statistics have been placed on a comparab 
basis with those of the C.N.R. by the inclusic 
of Express and Telegraph Departments, et

Current Economic Conditions 



The index of industrial production reached 
184.1 in September, 1948, and held for the next 
three months between this figure and 185.7 
reached in December. In January, 1949, it 
dropped 3.6% to 178.9. The sub-index for all 
manufactures was off 4.3% at 188.5 from 197.2 
for December with that of non-durables off 
4.1% from 180.2 to 172.7 and that for durables 
off 4.2% from 226.3 to 215.6. Manufacture of 
motor vehicles was primarily responsible for 
this decline, falling from 201.0 in December to 
108.5 in January. This decline was caused, in 
part at least, by temporary shut downs for 
retooling purposes during January. 

Railway car loadings of revenue freight totalled 
289 thousand for February last, 300 thousand 
for January and 316 thousand for December. 
The comparable figures for the preceding year 
were 286 thousand in February, 317 thousand 
for January and 321 thousand for December 
(1947) . Car loadings for the week ending March 
19 totalled 72,991 compared with 74,194 for the 
previous week and 76,239 for the corresponding 
week last year. 

The cost-of-living index stood on February 1 
at 159.5 very slightly down from 159.6 in 
January. From September, 1948 to February, 
1949, fluctuations in this index have held within 
the narrow range of 158.9-159.6. The general 
wholesale price index was off very slightly from 
December to January, as were the wholesale 
price indices of consumers' goods, producers' 
goods, industrial materials, and those for both 
partly and fully manufactured goods. The 
wholesale price index for general building mate- 
rials ran against the trend increasing slightly. 
The wholesale price index number of Canadian 
farm products stood at 226.2 for January 
compared with 227.6 for December. 

February merchandise exports were valued 
at $205 million, down about 1.5% from those of 



the same month in 1948. Sales of domestic 
products to the United States amounted to 
$106 million during the month compared with 
$94.8 million in February of last year, an increase 
of 12.6%. This was more than offset by declines 
in the sales to the United Kingdom which were 
off 14.7% from $51.7 million in February, 1948, 
to $44.1 million in February, 1949, and in sales 
to other European countries which dropped 
33.2% from $25.9 million to $17.3 million. 

Cash Farm Income Soars 

A preliminary estimate of farmers' cash 
receipts from the sale of farm products in 
1948 recently published by the Bureau indicates 
that this amounted to $2,450 million in 1948, 
$488 million or approximately 25% above the 
previous high record of $1,962 million estab- 
lish in 1947. When payments under the Prairie 
Farm Assistance Act are included the com- 
parable amounts are $2,470 million in 1948 and 
$1,974 in 1947. This cash income from the salt 
of farm products amounted in 1948 to almos 1 
four times the 1935-1939 average of $623..' 
million. 

High levels of domestic purchasing powe 
plus strong world demand combined to lif 
Canadian agricultural prices approximate! 
20% above the 1947 levels and this fact togethe 
with increased supplementary payments an 
larger distributions by the Canadian Whea 
Board of participation payments, rather tha 
increased production, was responsible for tl 
farmers' higher receipts. 

A 30% increase in the number of cattle ar 
calves marketed during the year, brougl 
about largely by removal of restrictions ( 
exports to the United States, and considerab 
higher prices made the sale of this commodi 
the greatest single source of income for tl' 
farmers in 1948. Sales of cattle and calves we' 



iv 



valued at $433.7 million up 84.4% from $235.3 
million in 1947. 

Sales of wheat grown in 1948 amounted to 
$401.7 million while participations and adjust- 
ments from previous crops brought growers an 
additional $158.4 million, the comparative 
figures for 1947 being $346.8 million and $73.8 
million. Sales of dairy products at 389.6 
million and hogs at $300.8 million were next in 
order of importance during the last year. 

Ontario, with an increase in farm income of 
$127.1 million from $541.3 million in 1947 to 
$668.4 million in 1948, showed the greatest 
absolute increase. Manitoba had the greatest 
percentage gain with a 33.9% increase from 
$181.4 million to $243.4 million. 

Report on Retail Sales 

The Dominion Bureau of Statistics has, over 
the past two years, completely revised its retail 
trade statistics on which the Monthly Report 
on Retail Sales was based. As a result of the 
revision this report has been discontinued and 
effective from January 1, 1949 has been replaced 
by'iRetail Trade, to be issued monthly. Whereas 
previously the dollar value of sales in various 
types of stores was reported in terms of index 
numbers, based on 1935-1939 = 100, the data 
will now be recorded in terms of dollar value 
directly. Sales for 20 different types of stores 
and for an "all other stores" group will be 
given. 

Data for three groups of stores — food, 
country general and department — has been 
compiled on an annual basis from 1941 to 1946 
inclusive, and on a monthly basis for 1947 and 
1948. For all the other groups of stores the 
innual material has so far been compiled only 
for 1941, but when it is assembled for the other 

ears it will be incorporated in a supplement 
to Retail Trade. 

This revision of the report on retail sales has, 
>f course, necessitated revision of table 45 of the 

unadian Statistical Review, which starting 
vith the present issue, will present a summary 
>f the material to be found in the new report. 

his summary will, at present, show total sales 
n dollar value and the value of sales in the 16 
nost important types of stores, for the year 
'941, 1947 and 1948 and for the last 25 months. 



When all the 1942-1946 data is available it will 
be included in table 45. While the breakdown 
of sales by economic areas in the new report 
lists each of the prairie provinces individually, 
limitations of space require that the Review 
retain the former grouping of these provinces 
in a single unit. 

Preliminary estimates based on the new 
series indicate that Canada's retail trade for 
1948 totalled $7,276 million, up 10.9% above the 
total of $6,563 million for 1947 and 111.7% above 
the 1941 figure of $3,437 million. The Bureau's 
1948 index of retail prices was up 19.2% from 
the 1947 figure and 54.4% above that for 1941. 

Improvements in the Balance 
of Payments 

The two outstanding developments in 
Canada's balance of international payments 
during 1948 were the substantial increase in the 
overall surplus with all countries and the even 
more marked decrease in the deficit with the 
United States. The latter, together with other 
factors, permitted Canada nearly to double her 
U.S. dollar reserves during the year. The 
elements contributing to these changes were 
discussed in the report recently published by 
the Bureau, The Canadian Balance of Inter- 
national Payments, Preliminary Estimate, 
1948, and in the Annual Report of the Foreign 
Exchange Control Board, 1918. They are 
summarized in the tables on page vi. 

Canada's surplus on current account transac- 
tions with all countries amounted to $453 
million (excluding shipments of official relief), 
compared with $47 million in 1947. Total 
receipts from all countries amounted to 
$4,139 million in 1948 compared with $3,746 
million in 1947, while total current payments 
were $3,667 million in 1948 compared with 
$3,661 million in 1947. The increase in the 
surplus was largely accounted for by merchan- 
dise exports expanding more rapidly than mer- 
chandise imports, but in addition "invisible 
exports" (i.e. receipts from tourist trade, 
freight and shipping, etc.) all showed an 
increase in 1948 over 1947 whereas "invisible 
imports" (payments on interest and dividends, 
expenditures of Canadian tourists abroad, etc.) 
declined alightly. The substantial increase in 
exports of merchandise, however, was almost

entirely due to higher prices rather than 
greater volume; the indications are that the 
volume of merchandise exports in 1948 was 
about the same as in 1947 and the volume of 
imports about nine per cent less. 



Important changes took place in the geogra- 
phical distribution of Canada's merchandise 
trade, particularly in regard to the destination 
of exports. These changes are shown in the

Relatively few changes took place in the 
type of goods exported from Canada, although 
there was a substantial increase in shipments 
of beef and beef cattle and coarse grains to the 
United States following the removal and relaxa- 
tion of export controls. By far the greater 
majority of our exports were, as normally, 
basic commodities, mainly unprocessed or 
semi-processed, and in spite of the great 
industrial expansion in Canada during the war 
it has proved difficult to maintain as much of an 
increase in exports of manufactured products 
as had been hoped. During 1948 there was 
some increase in the volume of these goods 
M'nt to the United States, but this was offset 
by a decrease in exports of them to other 
countries, which, in view of their dollar short- 
age, are trying to limit their imports from the 
Western Hemisphere to those necessary goods, 
such as food stuffs and raw materials, not 
obtainable elsewhere. 

Trmnsactions by Regions 

The increase in exports to the United States 
and the decrease in imports from that country 
«ere the major causes of the improvement in 



our dollar position. Our current account 
deficit with the United States in 1948 was $401 
million, compared with $1,135 million in 1947. 
The debit on merchandise trade was reduced 
from $903 million in 1947 to $289 million in 
1948; there were also slight reductions in the 
debits for interest and dividends, freight and 
shipping, and other items, and increases in the 
credit from tourist expenditures and exports 
of newly mined gold. 

On capital account with the United States 
there was a net credit to Canada of $127 million. 
In addition $770 million was received in con- 
vertible exchange from countries other than 
the United States, and in total these various 
amounts increased Canada's holdings of gold 
and United States dollars by $496 million (from 
$502 million to $998 million). This compares 
with a decrease of $743 million during 1947. 

In transactions with the United Kingdom, 
Canada's current account surplus declined 
from $633 million to $488 million. While to 
some extent this was caused by a decline in 
exports (down to $923 million from $967 million) 
it was mainly due to an increase in imports 



vn 



($435 million compared with $334 million), 
a healthy development. With the sterling 
area as a- whole and other E.R.P. countries, 
however, the trend was not so good. Canada's 
current account surplus with those countries 
declined from $1,148 million in 1947 to $846 
million in 1948, the change being covered by a 
decrease in exports to those countries of $156 
million and an increase in imports of $148 
million. When transactions with the United 
Kingdom are excluded, it emerges clearly that 
the rest of the sterling area and E.R.P. countries 
have used restriction of imports to decrease 
their debit balance with Canada rather than 
increasing sales of their products to us. 

Disturbed Condition in World Trade 

Here lies a serious problem concerning not 
only Canada but the whole future of world 
multilateral trade. As the report of the 
Foreign Exchange Control Board points out, 
the desirable way for the sterling area and 
E.R.P. countries to correct their dollar shortage 
is to increase their exports to the Western 
Hemisphere rather than to curtail their 
imports. Unfortunately, however, under the 
stimulus to reduce as far as possible their need 
for E.R.P. assistance, these countries have 
recently increased restrictions on imports 
from North America and have entered into a 
variety of bilateral trade and currency arrange- 
ments designed to facilitate trade between 
themselves. Much of this trade is being carried 
on at prices higher than would be the case if 
North American countries were free to compete 
for it, with the result that the cost and price 
structures of these countries are being steadily 
raised. This will make it progressively harder 
for them to sell their goods in the North 



American markets and this make the eventual 
achievement of free multilateral trade more 
difficult. 

In addition to these restrictions on Canada's 
exports, there are other matters to be con- 
sidered. For example, if wheat should be 
declared surplus in the United States, this 
would automatically prevent the use of E.R.P. 
funds by European countries for the purchase 
of Canadian wheat, which has been a substan- 
tial source of convertible exchange from 
abroad. Then again, the great improvement 
in our balance with the United States during 
1948 was to a some degree the result of restric- 
tions placed on the import of consumers' goods 
and capital equipment and- on Canadians 
travelling in the United States; some of these 
restrictions have already been removed and 
others relaxed and some increase in imports 
has already taken place. 

The problems posed to Canada by the dis- 
turbed state of world trade were referred to by 
the Minister of Finance in his budget speech. 
He mentioned that some people might suggest 
that Canada should follow the lead of other 
countries and embark on bilateral agreements, 
but he pointed out, with supporting argument, 
that this could only give short-run benefit and 
would in the long-run be most detrimental to 
our trading position. He referred, as a positive 
approach to the problem, to meetings being held 
at Annecy to enlarge the scope of the Geneva 
Trade Agreements, and that the Government 
hopes that when the legislation now befon 
the United States Congress to extend th< 
Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act is passed i 
will be possible to conclude a further agree 
ment with that country to open up wide 
possibilities for the export of Canadian manu 
factured goods.
